Burngreave Cemetery Grave Purchases
Apr 26th, 2008, 8:04pm
 
Great News !
In conjunction with the "Friends of Burngreave Cemetery", we are adding another searchable database in the Data Menu under the burials section. The database contains the names and addresses of the actual Grave Owners and the people who were interred in the plot.
 
It can be accessed by selecting "Data Menu" from the left hand menu and then further selecting "Burials". You will need to be logged in, in order to search the database. The Burngreave Cemetery records are also included in the site's Global Search facility.
 
We would like to extend our thanks to "Friends of Burngreave Cemetery" who are transcribing the Grave Purchase Books and will be adding other burials from time to time so that the database will contain burials with the name and address of the purchaser or some with the name and address of the deceased.
 
A brief introduction from "The Friends of Burngreave Cemetery"
The Cemetery opened in 1861 and the first burial was for five year old Oscar Brooks. The cemetery covers over 37 acres of land and up to date, there's over 150,000 burials that have taken place. Friends of Burngreave Cemetery are a voluntary group whose objectives are to help with the care of the chapels, its lands and also to further the historic and environmental benefits of this cemetery within the community.
